I've Always Known It's My Best Feature

Real time.

Backdrop: Millie braids my hair while Susannah lounges on the floor.
(That sounds too idyllic.  Actually, they're following my lead by finding creative ways to avoid cleaning the filthy kitchen.)

Susie: "Mama, do you know that you're beautiful?"

[Using my superhuman abilities, I flash her one of the many grotesque faces I carry around in my pocket.]

Susie: Stares, giggles, and then wistfully says, "Mama, I wish I had a double chin.  You can make the BEST faces."

Sorry, dear.  We all have our gifts.  Mine just happens to be the best.
